Wonder Women


Come gather at this women's retreat as we set off to find your inner joy warrior goddess!

You are the one you've been waiting for!

Yoga, guided meditation and writing, shadow work, 1:1 coaching in a group setting, polarity therapy, and more will help you gather the tools you need. Nourishing food, prepared with love, and a comfortable and nurturing environment will surround you. Most importantly, you'll be seen and heard and validated for who you TRULY are. You'll rediscover your own strength and resilience, you'll discover the unique powers that only you can share, and you'll find solid foundations within yourself as you prepare to fly!

About the Retreat

We are all pulled in so many directions at once. As partners, as parents, as colleagues, as mentors, and simply as women, we bear many invisible burdens. Our responsibilities are endless, and the job is never done. This can be draining, demanding, and overwhelming. It's enough to make you want to throw in the towel and run away as far and as fast as possible. And yet -

What if you believed that your power is limitless?

What if you could learn and utilize some simple and highly effective practices to help you tap into your own inner resources?

What if you gave yourself permission to access your own power, at any time, in any situation, in order to serve your own highest good?

What would it feel like for you to OWN YOUR TRUTH?

What would it feel like to REMEMBER WHO YOU WANTED TO BE?

Wonder Women Weekend is about reconnecting with all parts of yourself, embracing your shadow, and using your own power to create lasting change in your life! Yoga, guided meditation and journal prompts, polarity therapy, 1:1 coaching in a group setting, and more will provide you the tools you need. You'll learn how to tap into your own internal wellspring of power and knowledge. You'll recognize the sound of your own intuition and distinguish it from the chattering of your ego. You'll rebuild a solid foundation on which to stand as you launch yourself forward! 

We'll be staying at the beautiful Angels' Rest Retreat Center in Leyden, MA.

Your stay will include three nights' room and board, access to all yoga and group activities, a private session of your choice, and experiences that may change your outlook forever.

Previous Attendees Say:

Madeline M

I appreciate the splendor of Angels' Rest, the courageous women attending, and the energy received. The trust level and openness of the participants were most impressive. The conference room, the staff and the food are all beautiful and nourishing.


I was hoping to make spiritual progress, and to receive rest and refreshment, and I got it. I also received connection and healing.


Relief through sharing and hearing; friendship with a wonderful group of women who are all on the journey of life; joy as I leave here much happier and lighter. I was hoping for clarity, for brain space, and for peace. I got all three through the strength of these amazing women.


I Get It.

When I say, "I get it," here's what I mean:

I mean that sustainable, positive change is possible.

I mean that transformation can be effective and long lasting.

I mean that each of us has a story, and I've been where you are.

And now I'm here, ready to hear your story and help you find your way.
